Shifty Shafts Treasure Map - How to complete Fortnite Season 5 Week 9 challenge

Fortnite's Season 5 Week 9 challenge seeks players follow clues on a Treasure Map to locate a hidden Battle Star.


Fortnite Season 5 challenges have been keeping players busy, and the latest Week 9 challenge tasks players with not only finding a new Shifty Shafts Treasure Map, but also using it to locate the challenge's hidden Battle Star. Here's how to complete the challenge.

Shifty Shafts Treasure Map challenge

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 9 Battle Star challenge contains two separate objectives: the first is to find the Treasure Map, and the second is to follow it to find the hidden Battle Star. The map itself can be found over in Shifty Shafts, but players will be forgiven not knowing which location it's pointing to. As a reference, here's the Shifty Shafts Treasure Map:

There are a couple of clues on the map: the treasure is on a lower rocky outcropping featuring a few different trees, with the lower rock formation holding the treasure being found in the south end of the area.

If it looks familiar, it's probably because Fortnite players come across it all the time. The Shifty Shafts Treasure Map points to a Battle Star hidden on the southwest end of Dusty Divot, just a short ways north and west of salty Springs. Here's the location marked a map:

Fortnite players don't actually need to go to Shifty Shafts and locate the Treasure Map before seeking out the hidden Battle Star; instead, they can simply head over to the location near Dusty Divot and pick it up, eliminating most of the time needed to complete the Week 9 challenge. Just be on the lookout for other players who may be searching for the Battle Star or the chance to get an easy kill on distracted players.

With the Shifty Shafts Treasure Map and hidden Battle Star completed, players should be well on their way to earning this week's top Fortnite rewards. To stay on top of other challenges and news regarding Epic Games' hit battle royale title, be sure to stop by Shacknews' Fortnite home page.
